During your browse for lingerie it’s very likely that you’ve come across a ‘Spacer Bra’ before. It’s also very likely that you’ve thought ‘what on earth is a Spacer Bra?’. If you’ve always wondered but never discovered, read on to find out more (and possibly change your life).

Spacer Bras are a lightweight alternative to your usual padded bras. The difference lies within the fabric – it’s all about the Spacer Fabric. It’s created very differently to regular foam as the purpose is for it to be light and breathable. Spacer Fabric is a 3D knitted fabric (constructed of 2 layers of thin fabric, joined together with a spacer yarn), Woven to create airflow and light padding.

Check out the diagram below to discover how the Spacer fabric is built:

Spacer Bra Fabric Construction


Spacer Fabric is a premium fabric, designed to keep you feeling fresh and breezy because of its breathability. You get the smooth, supported finish of a T-Shirt bra with the added light feel of the Spacer Fabric, and because it’s so thin and lightweight, it moulds really well and creates a great shape. It’s perfect for women who like a moulded style but don’t want the added bulk of padding, and don’t want to compromise on support.

Panache has the Spacer Bra of dreams ‘Cari’, available in both versatile, every day colours and trendy bright shades. The fabric is soft to touch, offering a natural shape and smooth finish under clothing. If your every day T-Shirt bra feels like it has something missing, it’s probably time to upgrade to a Spacer Bra!
